Double oatmeal cookies with cranberries and walnuts

I love oatmeal cookies. I also love steel-cut oats. This recipe, cribbed from Eat Feed Autumn Winter is all of that and more. I’ve slightly modified the recipe, and these are currently my favourite cookies ever.


  • 1 1/2 c rolled oats
  • 1/3 c steel-cut oats
  • 3/4 c flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 c granulated sugar
  • 1/4 c packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c soft butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 c dried cranberries (optional)
  • 1/3 c chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 375F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together (everything up to and including salt).
  3. Cream butter and sugars together for a few minutes.
  4. Mix egg and vanilla into butter + sugar. Make sure they’re well blended…should be uniform and sort of fluffy and light.
  5. Stir in oat mixture until blended.
  6. Mix in cranberries and walnuts.

Drop in 2″ balls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, and flatten slightly. Leave some space between because they will spread out a bit. Bake for 5 mins, then turn the pans, then bake for another 6-7 mins (until golden brown). This made 20 cookies.

Cool on the pan for 2-3 mins, then on a cooling rack. Eat ‘um.
